4 Exercises You’re Not Doing; But Should Be
4 Exercises You’re Not Doing: But Should Be
1) The Modified Sots Press
The modified sots press is one of the most common exercises performed in gyms. However, it isn’t necessarily effective at building muscle mass or strength. If done correctly, however, it can increase your overall fitness level and improve your health.
What Is A Modified Sots Press?
A modified sots press is when you perform a standard barbell bench press with a smaller weight than what’s normally used. For example, if you use 50 pounds instead of 100 pounds, then the exercise becomes known as a 50/50 barbell bench press.
Why Do It?
There are several reasons why you might want to do this exercise:
You’re new to lifting weights and need some guidance.
You’ve been doing a regular barbell bench press but aren’t getting results.
Your current training program is too complex and doesn’t allow for enough variety.
You’re trying to lose fat while maintaining muscle mass. You don’t have time to do full body workouts anymore because you have other responsibilities like work or family obligations. You’d rather focus on just one area of your workout and hit it hard, fast, and frequently than spend hours working out in general.
You’re bored and need to change things up.
If any of the above applies to you, then this workout is for you.
How Do I Start?
The beauty of the modified sots press is that it’s simple to do and doesn’t require a lot of specialized equipment or knowledge. You just need a barbell, bench, weight plate(s), and plenty of space to move around in.
